4th March

Blustering wind interspersed with squally showers meant there wasn't so much as a sniff of yesterday's Cirl Bunting. However, a Chiffchaff in the Crown Estate was a new arrival accompanied by five Stonechats and six Song Thrushes. The Bill's Purple Sandpiper flock were one short with just five birds present and a Blackcap surfaced at Church Ope Cove. Ferrybridge provided the usual fare plus a pair of Bar-tailed Godwits.
